Firstly we really like the Graduate Collection, which is styled to look like a classic book. These use strong bindery cloths for durability with a handcrafted satin finish Baltic birch cradle.

A cheaper alternative is the Walden Collection, which again offers beautiful styling. This has a super tough simulated leather wrap and will keep your iPad mini secure.

The Contega for iPad mini/Retina is one for those who appreciate real class in an accessory.
